Santiago-Hudson, Sims, Ulmer, et al. Set for August Wilson and the Blues
The event, which is directed by Santiago-Hudson, is part of both the summer-long River to River Festival and the Signature Theatre Company's season-long tribute to Wilson. The season has just kicked off with their production of Seven Guitars, which features original music by Sims and is also directed by Santiago-Hudson, who won a Tony Award for acting in the show's 1996 Broadway production.
August Wilson and the Blues will draw from the late playwright's 10-play cycle about Pittsburgh's Hill District, which includes Fences, Gem of the Ocean, The Piano Lesson, and Seven Guitars.
